E-Cig: Liquids vs Cartridges

E-cigarettes are gaining popularity because of their convenience. People are able to use them anywhere including non-smoking environments, and they don’t emit any unpleasant odors. These qualities make it a very appealing option to most smokers. E-cigarettes have an added convenience in the long cold weather months of Minnesota: smokers don’t have to stand outside in cold.

There are two types of electronic cigarettes consumers are encountered with when they first start using the product. You can purchase starter kits that use non-refillable cartridges, or you can choose to use a tank style model that you refill using a nicotine liquid blend (e-liquid). Here are these two options in more detail.

E-Cigarettes Gaining Popularity

Electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) is a battery-powered electronic device, designed to resemble a normal cigarette, but to provide desired level of tobacco-free “pure” nicotine-mist as per the need of the user. In e-cigarettes, nicotine is delivered through replaceable cartridges that are available in various concentrations, (high=16 mg, medium=11 mg, low=7 mg, and none=0 mg). In normal cigarettes the amount of nicotine per cigarette is currently not provided. Most manufacturers suggest that one nicotine cartridge is equivalent to 15 to 20 actual cigarettes.
